Millies Expert Tips for Oily Scalp Care

Top Tips for Oily Scalps

The scalp contains an abundance of sebaceous glands. Oily scalp presents itself when there is an over production by these glands of a waxy substance known as sebum. 

There are many causes of oily scalp and while some causes can be genetic the following can also contribute 

  • Major hormonal stages in life e.g. puberty, pregnancy, menopause 
  • Using heavy conditioners directly on the scalp 
  • Incorrect washing method 
  • Headwear 
  • Overuse of styling products  

How to treat oily scalp  

First, we need to narrow down what we think may be causing the condition. Once we decipher the cause we can treat accordingly. One of the best ways to first treat an oily scalp is going back to basics and correct the way we are both cleansing and conditioning our hair. Peoples first change is sometimes to stop using conditioner. It’s good to remember that only if it a scalp specific conditioner such as Nioxin Scalp Revitalisers we don’t need to apply conditioner to our scalp at all! From the ears down is the best rule of thumb I find! 

Get into the habit of double cleansing. Again, this is skin we are treating and the first cleanse takes away the build-up, product and pollution whereas the second cleanse will treat the scalp and its concern. 

Products Recommended for an oily scalp  

Kerastase Fusio Energising Hair Scrubs 

Hair scrubs are an ideal way to deeply cleanse and remove a build up of oil and impurities on the scalp. This scrub will leave your scalp deeply cleansed and clarified while also leaving your hair volumised. 

The Inky List Salicylic Acid Exfoliation Scalp Treatment  

When we treat overproduction of sebum/oil on the skin, one of the hero ingredients we reach for in Millies is salicylic acid as it is a small molecule that can penetrate deep into the pore, dissolves the plugged oil and absorb it. This treatment should be used 1-2 times a week for best results. 

Kerastase Symbiose Intensive Anti-Dandruff Cellular Night Serum For Sensitive Scalp 

I love a product that will work as I sleep as it cuts out the step of me having to rinse out 

It should be used 3 times a week alongside the anti-dandruff shampoo in the range when cleansing for best results. It teats and combats dandruff at the source calming any sensitivity that occurs due to the inflammation on the scalp. The serum is amazing at promoting and increasing hydration in the scalp as well and strengthening the hair therefore in turn reducing breakage.
